    Was granted access as part of my college group to limited areas in and around the scenic railway.
    'The Scenic Railway is a wooden double out-and-back scenic railway located at the site of the former Dreamland Amusement Park, Margate, UK. It was built at the park in 1919/1920 and opened in March 1920. The ride is now almost unique, as a brakeman is still required to travel with the train to control its speed, as there are no brakes on the track. It is the oldest roller coaster in the UK and one of only eight scenic railways in the world. It is also the only roller coaster to receive listed status; being Grade II* listed in 2002.[1] It currently stands without operating due to a fire which destroyed approximately 25% of the ride in April 2008.'
